John Adams's signature on title page first leaf: "John Adams Paris 1784."
John Adams Library copy transferred from the supervisors of the Temple and School Fund. Quincy, Mass., 1894
pages 9-10 are missing. There are a variety of printer errors in the pagination (obvious "typos,"etc.) Because of the general hugeness of this book, there are significant amounts on inner margin text missing, this was impossible to avoid, and text has been preserved as much as possible.
